About this Recording

ADLER: Symphony No. 5 / Nuptial Scene / The Binding

Samuel Adler, one of America’s most respected composers, is equally known for his Judaic and general concert works. The selection of works on this CD embraces choral, cantorial, chamber, solo, and symphonic music, culminating in the Symphony No. 5, We Are the Echoes, which is based on Jewish poetry reflecting aspects of Jewish experience throughout history. The finale quotes the Jewish philosopher Heschel: “Now and then, high above me, I catch a glimpse of the faceless face of God.”

Adler, Samuel
